Red on Olive Midge (Zebra Midge, Tiger Midge ????)
Mudbug
Hook: # 20 Gamakatsu C13U (the turn at the eye keeps the bead from crowding the hook gap)
Thread/Body: 140D Olive Ultra
Rib: XS Red wire
Thorax/Gills Light Dun Super Fine Dubbing
Bead: White Rive 5/64 Tungsten
Note from Mudbug: For me Winter is Midge season on Tailwaters and a couple small spring fed creeks that don't ice over. #20 is by no means the smallest size, but the tungsten bead helps get a two fly rig down and you can drop a #24 or so of the back of this one under an indicator.
